Owners of 3D printers who would like to connect to their 3D printer wirelessly, might find the new AstroPrint wireless 3D printing software worth more investigation.
AstroPrint enables you to print 3D models direct to your 3D printer directly from your tablet or smart phone without any cable connection necessary. Watch the video after the jump to see the new AstroPrint 3D printing software in action.
AstroPrint enables you to use any smartphone or tablet as an effective 3D printer interface and offers the ability to reduce failed prints by using cloud based slicing that gets smarter over time as you use it. Instead of using Repetier Host or Pronterface to control your printer, you can now use AstroPrint. 3Dagogo AstroPrint’s creators explain a little more :
“The AstroPrint platform consists of two parts that operate seamlessly together:
– The AstroBox allows you to connect to, and control, your 3D printer over wifi from phones, computers, and tablets. The AstroBox can be used standalone, or in conjunction with our free online cloud slicing and file storage services at AstroPrint.com.
– AstroPrint.com slices, organizes, and stores your designs in the cloud. In addition, through AstroPrint.com, you can connect to your AstroBox to control your printer.”
The AstroPrint project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
